My new Obsession...Handmade journals!


Well, I a have found a new obsession and it is handmade journals, it is so fun and I have attempted to make like 6 in a night, but a couple didn't work out, trial and error! well the ones that did work I LOVE!!! So I thought I would write about them a bit, they are completely up cycled from pop tart boxes and cereal boxes, the outside is up cycled tissue paper or packing paper that is painted with water colors, then I added a button to close the journals and stitched the spines! These are fun, and great for travel, and to buy similar at the store can run 30+ bucks, I am selling mine for 6.99+ $3 shipping, they make great gifts and I can personalize them too! I could only upload pics of my red journal because camera died but I will adding more later!

  3. Seal the boxes together with packing tape.
  4. Cover the boxes with the wrapping paper.
  5. Line the raw edges at the front with the duct tape.
